New: Architecture: Inhabited Sculpture

Posted on Sep 5, 2008


Art is where you find it, and Architecture provides unique opportunities to unite form and function. As Realtors, we have occasion to experience a wide swath of the offerings made available to the buying public.
I feel a deep sense of accomplishment when I walk into a
space with a client and see the serenity that envelops their being as
they recognize ‘home’. This is a very personal business. Few things in
the material world are more sacred than the space we inhabit and call Home.

It’s a blissful combination of quality (both in materials and execution), location, size, amenities, lighting, openness, and of course, price, but most critically, the thoughtful, even artistic arrangement of all of these elements in a given space. However, in the mass-produced world of P & L statements, and the ubiquitous drive to ‘maximize’, ‘home’ often gets lost in the ‘house’.

For that reason, I feel compelled to open a new category on this blog- a Showcase of Homes, in all the various permutations that represent the best expressions of the unique, the unusual, the classic, and the new. This category will openly request your entries, and the only guideline is that the homes must be habitable. While this first home is listed, it is not a requirement for entry into the category.

To open the category, I’m pleased to present a newly completed home that was designed by architect and personal friend, Barb Rose-Leigh, of Rose-Leigh Design.

Located at 5227 Pullman Ave NE Seattle, WA 98105, and referred to as The Pullman Modern, this home is a wonderful example of contemporary Modern Architecture, with the clean, simple lines reflecting a laser focus on function, while the warm glow of natural light and materials envelops the living spaces. Additional photos and info can be found HERE.

This home is listed For Sale by Windermere Agents, Kelly & Kian Pornour, 206.949.9302, 206.713.9835 and is presented with their permission. WRE Co. LFP
